Spain’s Cristòfol Subira says Don't Leave the EUOIA

Spain’s Cristòfol Subira (1957-), co-created with Wales' Alys Conran, says Don't Leave the EUOIA (European Union Of Imaginary Authors)..

Cristòfol Subira was born in 1957 in Barcelona. He worked for many years as a street performer and living statue in the tourist districts of the city. Between 1980 and 2007, Subira produced four collections of poetry, alternately in Catalan and Spanish, but since then, his poetry has not appeared in print except for several unattributed poems inscribed on the paving of cul-de-sacs in Barcelona, recently acknowledged as his work. There was one doubtful sighting in Brussels in the summer of 2010.

Our writing of Cristòfol Subira, part of Gelynion Poetry (Bangor), on May 26th 2015, may be seen below and at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVOfQEMoss4.
